Conference Webster, R. Cycle three saw the first Bakken Formation play. Partial distribution of oil and gas wells producing from the Ordovician Red River Formation. The middle Interlake Formation is productive in two fields in Stark County and the lower Interlake Formation produces from two porosity zones, informally named the Salsbury and the Putnam. Modified from Carroll,

Rocks of the lower cycle record a northwest connection into the Elk Point Basin while deposition in the upper cycle records a westward connection into the Central Montana Trough. The North Dakota Bakken play has focused in two general areas: sandstone and carbonate play around the Nesson anticline and a carbonate play in the southern area Fig. Depositional Environments Depositional Environments The late Devonian Period ended with deposition of shallow marine to terrestrial sediments of the Three Forks Formation as marine regression occurred to the northwest portion of the Williston Basin. The Charles Formation records a major marine regression during the upper Kaskaskia Sequence. Google Scholar Ewing, M.

That process, which is ongoing today, produced a breccia that consists of fragments of overlying formations that collapsed when their support was removed, as well as insoluble material from within the Prairie Evaporite itself.

Later, the shelf differentiated into a basin surrounded by a platform Ehrets and Kissling, Google Scholar Brown, W. Geological Survey Professional Paper19 p. The miogeosynclinal rocks thicken abruptly westward from 1, feet near this belt to about 3, feet near the east edge of the Idaho batholith.

Download the database now:. Most of the oil generated has been expelled into the middle member of the Bakken which is bounded by organic rich shales that are both sources and seals Pitman el al. The lower member is comprised of two lithofacies, a lower red-bed lithofacies containing quartz arenites and "clayshales", and an upper green quartz wacke.

The anoxic conditions resulted from a stratified hydrologic regime. In northern Montana, they are as much as 1, feet thick. Figure 9. Conference Webster, R. The blue colors represent carbonate rocks and the reds and yellows represent evaporites.

Production from the middle member is found along the northern Nesson anticline where low porosity and permeability sandstones produce some oil. Tulsa Proc, Vol, 2, pp. The inferred faults probably have similar characteristics to the larger faults on the Cedar Creek anticline, that is they dip nearly vertically, may have a component of wrenching, have undergone recurrent movements, and the direction and magnitude of displacement has changed over time.

The study will address the issue of the importance of the matrix versus fracture permeability Devonian System of the Williston Basin Area. book they exist. The formation also produces from small structures on the Nesson anticline and elsewhere Fig. Production usually comes from the Gunton Member which can have a well developed dolomite porosity.

BB, Google Scholar Hoy, R. Google Scholar Brown, W. Ging, T. LoBue also recognized paleosols, and interpreted them as periods of prolonged subaerial exposure. This production was established during the 's, making it some of the oldest production in the state Anderson and Eastwood, The Bakken Formation has three informal members, an upper and a lower black, organic-rich shale, separated by an arenaceous limestone to siltstone.

The Duperow Formation produces from stratigraphic traps in the central Williston Basin, from structural traps along the Nesson anticline, and from combination traps on the Billings anticline.

Consequently, it has been explored extensively by oil geologists. However, the best porosity is not always coincident with the structure's crest Longman et al, Google Scholar Hite, R. The clastic rocks had an extra-basinal source and mark the influence of the Ancestral Rocky Mountain orogenic event Gerhard et al.

This may be explained within brackets [ ]. Beds draped across dissolution edges enhanced closure, as exhibited by Glenburn, Sherwood, and Wiley fields, while two-stage salt dissolution formed the "Nisku Reefs" of northeastern Montana.
